Agenda Item: VIII.H.

Consider/Approve Central Cafeteria Bread Bid for the 2012 – 2013 School Year

Background Information:

In addition to advertising, we solicited bids for the purchase of bread (specifications attached) from Sara Lee and Flowers Baking for the remainder of the 2012 – 2013 school year. Hostess had the bread bid, but has since gone out of business. We received no bids for the purchase of bread; therefore, our only option is to use quote prices for the remainder of the school year when bread is purchased. In my opinion, soliciting more bids at this point would be futile and a waste of funds.

Funds for these purchases are budgeted in the FY13 Central Cafeteria Fund budget.

Staff Recommendation:

Since no bids were received, no Board action is required and the item is for informational purposes only.
